THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

"In my films, I always wanted to make people see deeply. I don't want to show things, but to give people the desire to see." After studying art history and working briefly as a photojournalist, Agnès Varda turned to filmmaking. Between her first film, made when she was 25, and her most recent, made last year when she was 80, she has created some of the most stimulating and influential films of her era. Whether fictional features such as CLÉO FROM 5 TO 7 or her “ciné-criture” (film-writings) such as THE GLEANERS AND I, her films are marked by their singular sense of composition, careful juxtaposition of sound and image, and fearless confrontation with societal expectation. This ten-film selection features some of the seminal works of Varda, an artist New Yorker critic Pauline Kael termed "A full-fledged visual filmmaker...[who] sustains an unsentimental yet subjective tone that is almost unique in the history of movies."

Special thanks to Ciné-Tamaris and Janus Films, series sponsors Alliance Française de Portland and TV5 MONDE, the international French language television network, and the assistance of the French Consulate, San Francisco.
